The Paragon: Blackheath
The Paragon: Blackheath
I think that The Paragon is one of the most beautiful streets in London.Designed and built by Michael Searles in 1794 - 1807 he would provide the buyer with a brick shell which could then be fitted out to suit the buyer’s tastes and budget. However, the scheme nearly ruined Searles financially. They were restored 1947 - 1957 (when the houses were converted to flats) by Charles Bernard Brown. The Paragon is grade I listed. it is a crescent of unusual rhythm, six pairs and a central house, three storeys over basement, and with mansard roofs, connected by Tuscan colonnades, a favourite Searles motif. Each house is of two plus two slightly concave bays, with front door and two further windows within the colonnade on each side. The colonandes are (or were) of Coade Stone, as is the sparing decoration. The low lodges at either end are post-war creations but entirely convincing The Buildings of England - Pevsner Grade I listed, Circa 1790. Crescent of 7 blocks of 2 houses with lodges to East and West. Each block has 3 storeys attic and basement, 4 windows. Hipped, slated mansard roof with 2 round headed dormers and central brick chimney stack. Multicoloured stock brick walls, Coade stone dressings. Mutule cornice and parapet. Fluted 1st floor cill band and springing band of arcaded ground floor, the latter with paterae at intervals. Gauged brick arches to recessed sash windows with glazing bars (some replaced) in plain reveals, those on upper and basement floors flat, those on ground floor round headed in round arched recesses resting on basement plinth with stone coping. Houses have slightly concave curved fronts to fit line of terrace. 6-panel doors have cornice heads with paterae and patterned, semicircular fanlights. Blocks linked by 6-bay Roman Doric colonnades. Entablature with triglyphs and mutules, balustrade above. Wrought iron railings between columns and to areas and entrance steps. Small lodges to East (Paragon Cottage) and West (Paragon Lodge), with stucco vermiculate quoins. Group was badly damagedin World War II and has since been carefully rebuilt and restored, and converted into flats. Plaque on No 15 "Festival of Britain 1951. Award for Merit." British Listed Buildings
